Ingredients Edit

California avocado salsa Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Bring stock to a simmer; keep hot over low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté shallot in olive oil until just tender, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in rice; sauté, stirring constantly, until outer covering is translucent, about 2 minutes.
  4. Deglaze with wine; cook until almost all wine has evaporated.
  5. Stir in with1 tablespoon salt.
  6. Stir about 1 cup simmering stock into rice until almost all liquid has evaporated.
  7. Continue stirring in stock 1 cup at a time, until risotto has cooked 12 minutes.
  8. Do not add stock the last 2 or 3 minutes; risotto must have almost no liquid when it reaches the 12-minute mark.
  9. Immediately turn risotto out on an oiled sheet pan, spreading ½-inch thick; cool.
  10. Cool remaining stock; reserve for per-order preparation.
  11. Risotto can be made up to 1 day ahead; store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator.
  12. Take it out shortly before service.
  13. Just before service: slice avocado about ⅜" thick; brush with lime juice.
